Alex Schladebeck Slays Testing and Product Ownership with Agile Amped at AATC2016

Alex Schladebeck is both a tester and a Product Owner. Who’da thunk that a tester (i.e., the person constantly trying to think how the user might experience a product) and a Product Owner (i.e., the person responsible for ensuring that the user gets the value they want) could perhaps have similar ideas about product design and development. Alex is at AATC2016 to turn “potentials” into “slayers” (and, yes, that is a Buffy reference). The goal of her session is to promote the concept of taking the testing responsibilities, which are often quite difficult and unreasonable (“You never have enough testers to do all of the testing”), and spreading them out across the team to make it more manageable.

Alex Schladebeck is the head of Test Consulting at BREDEX GmbH and is also Product Owner for Jubula, the open source test tool. Within both roles, shes responsible for making sure that customers needs are satisfied, be it in terms of quality assurance services for their projects or features for implementation.
